Free BPM?

A post on the BPM Insights Blog listing Free BPM Modelling Tools recently caught my eye.

Firstly I thought it would be good to have a simple list of all of the available tools, so I have compiled a list, see the Process Tools (Free) category on my Process on the Web page.

Secondly, it would also be good to compile reviews of these tools, as I have found it difficult to assess the value that I am going to receive using one of these tools. Therefore, I will be looking for existing reviews, or to review some of the tools myself, in upcoming posts.

Do you know of any free tools that I should add to the list?  Or do you have any good reviews (maybe one you wrote yourself) of a free Process Tool?

We Love BPM and other Process Blogs

I am collecting; building my own collection of BPM related websites. The links section of this blog website includes links to Process Management Blogs, Associations, Vendors & Consultants and sites with articles and other information about BPM.

I will have a handy collection of information that I used to store in link sites, browser bookmark bars and on little scraps of paper, and I don’t mind if you use it too. Even better, if you have a link you would like to share – let me know and I will add it to the collection.

I want to make a special mention of the link I added today. ARIS BPM Blog, although a vendor sponsored site, contains really good general information about BPM, however my favourite thing is ARIS TV – a (so far) short video series on BPM which incorporates ARIS’s great slogan “We BPM”.

Episode 6 of the ARIS TV series includes an interview with Professor Michael Roseman from QUT. I am a fan of the work that Michael and his team have done on BPM Maturity and developing BPM strategy. (more on this later..)
